Box Text
"Rescue the hostages from impending death. On land, at sea and from underground caverns."
Reviews
Cheats
Rescuing level 2 hostages
The last eight hostages on level two are in the submarine. Bomb the periscope as it appears from the water. This will cause the entire submarine to emerge. The hostages will appear on the bridge. Land next to them to start the rescue.

Stop tank from firing
Move up and down after landing to collect the hostages to prevent the tank from firing.

Hostage Tip
When the helicopter is shot, press both buttons and move the Directional Pad up and down. This will enable the hostages to eject out of the helicopter.

Easter Eggs
On Rounds 1 and 4, shoot 10 Space Mines and Superman will appear. On Round 3, head left all the way to the end of the cave and shoot upwards at the ceiling. This will enable the hostages to run faster. You can do this more than once.

On Rounds 2 and 5, shoot the Radio Towers on the boats and Jaws will come out of the water.

On Round 4, for every 16 hostages you rescue, with none being killed, E.T. will appear.
